How about some global warming in April? [Letter]

In his commentary, Joe Uehlein makes some dire predictions about ecological conditions in the future ("Climate change threatens economy," April 2). He writes that flooding and coastal erosion will have an impact on port operations. He states the rising sea levels will have a catastrophic effect on the lower Eastern Shore. But the one that really grabbed my attention is this: "By 2050, days hotter than 90 degrees Fahrenheit will triple to 90 days a year. Between 25 and 30 days will be above 100 degrees."

Can the author give us the temperature for Easter Sunday of 2014 with such certainty?

Marie Mullen, Joppa
